I like the look of the hat but for a lace weight yarn the needle sizes are wrong. Do they mean 5 and 7 size needles or use the millimeters. If that is the case it is size 8 needles and a bigger size. I guess you can use the basic pattern and adjust it.

I've made this hat 3 times now and the needle sizes are correct. You cannot achieve gauge on the needle sizes you have suggested.

I made this and was so excited LOL I must have a giant head because mine didn't look anything like the picture -oh well tho. Fun to make it

what ever happened to the "save pattern" button?

Hello pabenzo, scroll to the bottom of the pattern and you'll see a gray button that says "+Save." You'll be able to save the pattern once you click that button. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Is this like a. Pure wool weight or double knit thanks

It is a lace weight yarn.

A single picture from the front doesn't give enough of an idea of what the end product looks like. Or is it exactly the same all the way round?

It will look the same all the way around, it's just stocking stitch on 2 different size needles.

Made this in a couple of hours and it looks great. I hate hats, but this one is very flattering. Thanks!

What yarn did you use? I looked up the yarn for the pattern in ravelry and it is actually a lace weight yarn not a worsted weight yarn as noted on this website.

Hi Lisa, we have updated the yarn weight for this pattern. Thank you for bringing this to our attention! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

What size, please, is 7mm??? 6.5 mm is US size 10 1.2 - 8mm is US 11. So please clarify?

7mm is just that, there is no US equivalent for that size. Most craft or hobby stores will have metric needles, mind you it took me several years to find mine because where I am it is such an uncommon size.
